This review is for LBS
Program Full Time MBA
Class of 2019
London Business School has a great reputation for Finance, Consulting and Banking. Although this is still true, the Tech and Entrepreneurship communities are taking over LBS, which has given the school a fresh innovate atmosphere.
A new LBS building called the Samy Ofer Center just opened this year and is already proving to be a valuable addition to the program. The more than 420 students that come through the doors are originally form over 130 countries, which provides the most diverse student body of any MBA program. I've been truly impressed with the amazing classmates I have this year, I've never been between such highly capable individuals that range from military, government, marketing, investment banking and entrepreneurs. Additionally, being in London is something that cannot be taken for granted, Brexit or not, this is the place you want to be!
Recruiting is much better than I expected. The career services offer plenty of help and all the biggest companies from Tech, Banking, Consulting, Consumer and Luxury come to recruit from day one.
If you like to travel this is also the MBA for you. Having been to dozens of countries and 3 continents in just first term is mind boggling. Also, to have people from all this corners of the world in your class, makes every trip a locally curated one, which is a perfect way to understand the world.
Ultimately, if you don't want a cookie-cutter and be surrounded by the most amazing talent in the world, you need to apply to London Business School.
The program is extremely flexible, yo only have one term of core clases, and the other 5 you can choose the right path for you. You can also go on exchange with the best institutions in the world (8 out of the top 10 in USA) and even have two internships.
You won't have an issue getting a job. Not only do all the big companies recruit year-round, but also local businesses from all over the world come to LBS to find global talent. As an example, through the MBA office I applied to summer internships in companies located in Sweden, Japan, Argentina, Belgium, Singapore, Dubai and Johannesburg, to name a few.
